Kobe is frustrated. He has a right to be — yes he can be selfish, but he is the most talented player in the NBA, and would you pass the ball to people that are going to lose you the game. (I see your hand waving LeBron James, you can put it down now).
With the loss of Shaq, came the loss of the Lakers as a team. Now it’s just Kobe and a bunch of other guys. That’s not Kobe’s fault. The blames lies at the Buss family and Mitch Kupchak.
Give Kobe a team of qualified players. People that can help him do what he so desperately wants to do — win. Or alternatively, let him be free and get around to actually rebuilding the Lakers into a championship team.
